Wahaka Mezcal is one of the only mezcal brands whose agave fields are exclusively owned by our partners and shareholders, a sharp contrast to many other brands that often outsource the production of their product. The estate-farmed Espadin agave is harvested
after ten years of maturity. It takes 25 days to produce 1,000 litres of Wahaka Mezcal.
